Product Description

Kangaroo Jack is back in an all-new, full-length, animated sequel to his hip-hoppin' hit movie! When poachers kidnap Jackie Legs from the Australian Outback, Louis, Charlie and Jessie leap into action! Their attempts to save their marsupial mate route them back to the U.S. into the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, baby! They also land right in the pouch of a cross-continental jewl heist--and the FBI thinks they're the crooks! To prove their innocence, all they have to do is find the jewels. And to find the jewels, all they have to do is find Jack. Jack in Vegas--boxing matches, all-night discos, seven-course buffets--where do you start?! This is a high-stakes adventure the whole family will win on!

As the title suggests, the adventurous kangaroo christened Jackie Legs by his human friends has left his Outback habitat for the United States, although not voluntarily. The humans have cleaned up their act in this animated sequel to the 2003 live-action movie. Gone are the violence and all but a smidgen of potty humor, as once again Louis puts his beloved Brooklyn jacket on the runaway Jackie. But this time the clothed marsupial is bouncing through the streets of Vegas, thanks to the smuggling plot of a smarmy animal-act proprietor. (Think a criminally minded Crocodile Hunter with a Siegfried and Roy-like show.) Louis is joined by pal Charlie and his sister Jessie in a Scooby-Doo-style effort to figure out the real crime (the smuggling of ancient Aboriginal jewels), track down Jackie, and return him to his family. Along the way there's some kickboxing, a rap number, and plenty of slapstick humor. (Ages 5 to 11) --Kimberly Heinrichs

Finally, a sequel for kids! It's nice to see a child's cartoon differ from the original box office smash. The context is cleaned up enough that kids of all ages can watch without fear of what might come out of the stars' mouths.

The bonus feature showcases a live baby kangaroo making it's way up to his mama's pouch and several shots of baby kangaroos jumping in and out of their mama's pouch. Having never seen that before, I thought the video was worth purchasing for that alone. Young children will get a kick out of National Geographic's short skit.

The only drawback was the fact that they jump from the main storyline to a scene where Kangaroo Jack begins boxing and rapping. It left me bewildered, until Louis wakes up and talks about his dream. This one bit could have been saved for the bonus features. When I made the comment aloud, my 9-year-old daughter said, "Mom, it was meant to be funny; to make kids laugh. There was no purpose to it." I smiled and said, "well if they were gearing towards kids, they did it right."

I got this for my 4 year old. He didn't pay too much attention to it, he was only 3 at the time I got it, but the adults liked it a lot. He will like better soon though. A very cute movie.

HI peoples, how is things? I don't know why this Martin Score-See-and-say guy keeps making movies with all those angry guys like Robert De Nero and Joe Pessy, with all those loud, unhearable music songs. There's no need for those awful, awful "Taxi Driving", "Raging Bull", "Casinoes", and "Goodfellows" moogies when we have... oh... :-D... KANGAROO JACK 2: G'DAY USA!!! :-D :-D :-D

I foist heard about this moogie the other day at the Discount DVD Store near my daycare in Pennsylvania (!!!). The first one was sheer sinnematic BRILLIANCE! I mean the CGI! The Kangaroo RAPPING!!! :-D WHO NEEDS A SCRIPT?!?!? ANYHOO I see'd my friend Bert, moonlighting at the Discount DVD store, and I said "HEY BERT, BUENOS NACHOS!!! ;-) HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE! What kind of DVD's we gots today?" He said "Well Mervie, we got some returns on Kangaroo Jack 2."

The next thing I knew I was being kicked awake in the hopsital!!! THEY MADE A KANGAROO JACK 2?!?!? WHAT ELSE HAVEN'T YOU TOLD ME?!?!? I GOT THE DVD RIGHT AWAY!!! :-D :-D :-D I showed it to my little ones! Oh my this is WONDEROUS! :-) I love it sandwiched right between VeggieTales and The Rules Of Attratcion! :-D FORGET anything with that Score-see-and-say's name on it, it's too INTRICATE AND VIOLENT!!! :-O BUT THATS OK BECAUSE KANGAROO JACK 2!!! :-D :-D :-D

I would give it FULL MARKS, but "G'Day" is improper slang, and if kids start spelling it that way as opposed to "Good Day", that is not good. But so whatux? :-D BUY IT OR YOUR KIDS WILL GO BLIND!!! :-D MERVIE!!!!!!!!
